We've just received final confirmation that the safari we booked to Botswana is a go, so now it's real. Yesterday, we went for the first round of vaccinations. Polio-diptheria-tetanus booster, typhoid, Hep A & B (Twinrix), Malaria, Anti-diarrhea/e-coli/cholera, and who knows what all else. We were surprised that we didn't need yellow fever or dengue fever treatment. But I guess that's because we are traveling in dry areas of Africa and not the jungle this time. Back to the travel medical clinic in a month for the Twinrix booster.
Meanwhile, before leaving on this exotic trip, there are family travels to take care of. We travel to Michigan later in July to move my mother from Michigan to North Carolina so she can be near to the rest of the family. And Richard's daughter is getting married in California in September. This will be a busy fall.
